Volunteering at Jupiter Medical Center

At Jupiter Medical Center, our Auxiliary (volunteers) provide invaluable support to patients, visitors and team members. Over 700 volunteers comprise our Auxiliary and come in all shapes, sizes and ages. They share a common desire to touch people's lives and make a difference by contributing to the community in which they live and prosper.

Ways to Help

Volunteers serve in many areas of the hospital, performing a variety of tasks, such as assisting visitors, directing, escorting and transporting patients, assisting family members in waiting rooms, performing administrative functions, visiting with patients, offering reading materials, or just making sure the patient is as comfortable as possible.

Volunteers assist Jupiter Medical Center team members in departments such as:

  • Pre-Op
  • Gastrointestinal Services
  • Emergency Room
  • Foshay Cancer Center
  • Pavilion
  • Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center

Additionally, our volunteers contribute to various hospital programs, including Pastoral Care, Patient Advocacy, and Pet Therapy.
